angela merkel appeared unimpressed with obama 's performance. today, the u.s. president considers merkel to be one of his closest allies. last year, obama awarded to german chancellor the presidential medal of freedom, but merkel has been remarkably silent about the u.s. elections. her lack of open support suggests her friendship with obama may not be so close after all. but talk of a meeting this summer was also shut down. the chancellor had no plans to interrupt her vacation. at the last debate, obama talked about foreign policy. they came back to domestic issues and only once did he even mention europe. whichever candidate is elected, politicians say merkel's partners will be expected to play a bigger role in the world stage. >> europe is going to have to take on more responsibilities. the u.s. expects to do more militarily and expects us to get the turbulence with the euro under control, so germany is going to do more in every respect. >> the u.s., then pose a global role may be changing, but most germans still see obama as a hero -- the u.s.'s global role may be changing. >> there h

difficult. angela merkel said we might not reach an agreement this week. there is a long tradition of people playing down expectations only to declare a triumph of a few hours later. there is no doubt this has been the most difficult budget discussion they have had because of the economic context. they were hard enough for seven years ago in the last budget around had to be completed. this time, we are in a time of crisis. a time of national austerity, everyone is being closely monitored. there is a basic philosophical divide saying we can't spend as much as we used to. the eu has more member states joining next year, it is being asked to do do more things. you can't keep asking them to do more and more with less and less money. >> we are expecting l.a. evening? >> is possible that they can go all night, or is possible that they will produce a new set of figures. a new budget proposal which experts from all the delegations will have to go through them. people are hoping they might send them home for the night and stopped again in the morning. >> syrian rebels, consolidating their hold

much lauded for his very good relationship with angela merkel, the chancellor of germany. the fact that he has a good relationship with barack obama, it's at this point somewhat irrelevant because the crucial figure that italy has to get on right now is germany, not the united states. is that the new europe? >> that's a little bit, yes. there's a little -- a lot, you know. germany has become a very powerful player. italy has $2.5 trillion in debt and they need angela merkel to support them. they can never bail them out, but in a way they can slow the repayment of the debt or help them in some kind of way, but i think also they're looking toward the federal reserve, what ben bernanke has been doing in the last few years and how he actually saved the economy in the united states while europe was still fumbling what to do and now they're following the same formula, same recipe that ben bernanke set up to bring america back. >> finally, ari shavit, let me ask you. president obama gave an interview to a senior decision-maker but it was widely reported to be barack in which he mused about an

and indirect subsidies, but that is unlikely to change under angela merkel's center-right government. in fact, even if it did and the costs -- more of the costs were passed on to industry, i suspect that the ordinary citizen would still have to pay a large share of the costs, that industry would probably just passed a large part of those costs onto the consumer, but a majority of people in germany do want this energy change. they know it is expensive. they will have to pay for it. >> thanks for that analysis. >> travelers in germany will soon have no options to choose from because the government is finally allowing bus companies to compete with the national rail service on long-distance routes. >> deregulation will come into effect at the beginning of next year. analysts say consumers can expect to benefit from lower fares. >> at the moment, when you travel more than 100 kilometers, you consider driving or taking the train or plane. germans do not even think of taking the bus. >> in 1934, the government made the national rail company the only player in long distance travel

months, there has been quite a bit of tension mainly because angela merkel came out during the last presidential elections in france, very openly for nicholas sarkozy, which got her off on to a very bad start with the current french president, but the experience of governing in the last six months in france has toned down the criticism from hollande and his prime minister. they realize they cannot fulfil, have not been able to yet, many of the pledges they made during the election. the atmosphere is, on the surface at least, a little bit better. >> considering all the problems in the eurozone right now, can germany and france really hold europe together? >> the relations between the two countries are really not at their best, and i am share of the next e. summit where they will be discussing the budget over the next few years, there are very different priorities -- at the next eu summit. i think there will be a lot of tension. in the past, at least, leaders of both countries have realized france and germany have to stand together if they want to advance the european project, and i t

week. >> chancellor angela merkel said there was no easy solution to the problems in athens, but she said she was confident that eurozone finance ministers would release that next round of bailout money next week. >> the leader of the opposition, however, accused merkel of failing to reveal the true cost of the measures to help greece and said this made it impossible to pass germany's own budget. our political correspondent has been following the budget debate for us. the chancellor faced some tough criticism on her handling of the year of crisis. what more can you tell us? >> indeed, one of the main critical voices was that of the social democratic leader, and that, of course, is no coincidence because he in fact will be the rival candidate for the chancellery in elections next year. he accused the chancellor of doing the dance of the seven veils, saying she is obscuring the true cost of a greek bailout and calling on her to finally come clean and let the taxpayers know exactly what kind of sacrifice will be expected from them. mr. steinbrueck basically asking how they can pass a bu

bailouts to countries such as greece. >> where is the debate then on member states? angela merkel is the leader who is most associated with austerity as a policy. francoise hollande in france came to power on a wave of anti- austerity. where is the debate? >> francois hollande gave a long interview to a newspaper only last month, saying that the traditional franco-german motor driving the european union is set to stall because of these deep divisions over what to do, but even he -- even francoise hollande, if you look at him, he is imposing austerity measures in france as well. christine lagarde at the intenational monetary fund would say that the idea is for creditors to take a hit so ordinary workers do not have to suffer too much, but it is a horrible balancing act. yes, the commission is taking note of what is happening with great concern but does not offer any alternative to deep austerity as the beginnings of getting out of this economic crisis. >> certainly a frustrating situation all around. thanks very much for that. >> let's stay in brussels for a moment because the eu is takin

chancellor angela merkel and her finance minister can count on the majority in parliament to support the plan, even though many lawmakers still had questions when they were being briefed. opposition parties have not yet laid down their position, but in the past, they have signaled that they will support continuing aid for greece, but the social democrats, germany's largest opposition party, wants more information. >> it is too early to determine what impact tonight's decision will have on the german budget. we have also not yet calculated what the consequences would be for the future of greek debt. >> as far as the opposition is concerned, a hair cut for greece is not off the table yet. if anything, it is being postponed until after the election. >> the prospect that german taxpayers will be left holding the bag on greece is not new. for more, let's bring in our political correspondent. how will politicians be addressing taxpayer concerns? >> i think if german taxpayers are concerned that money is being wasted in these bailouts and in these efforts to help greece, i think the governm
